Chicago is so cold in January that not only are the three moon pioneers snuggling under a blanket together, Jim’s glove appears to have frozen onto his face.

This might be my favorite photo of Jim Lovell.

Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone

Let’s pretend that we’re together all alone

I’ll tell the man to turn the jukebox way down low

And you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go

-”He’ll Have to Go”, Nat King Cole

A CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING – On December 18, 1965, Gemini 7 astronauts Jim Lovell and Frank Borman returned from a two-week voyage in space, splashing down in the Atlantic about 6.4 nautical miles from the targeted landing point. Soon U.S. Navy frogmen from the USS Wasp were there to pick them up. As Frank Borman recalled, “We’d been in the water about ten minutes when we saw a Navy frogman’s face in the right window. He plugged in his inter-phone, and his first words were ‘Merry Christmas.’”
